All Welcome At Hebburn Community Area Forum
People living in the Hebburn area of South Tyneside can find out more about community safety initiatives and efforts being made to help people stay healthy emotionally and physically at Monday's (16th April) meeting of their local community area forum.
The Forum will receive a report highlighting the work of the Council's anti social behaviour team and its community safety partners on initiatives taking place across the Hebburn area. The team will also outline its joint working arrangements with South Tyneside Homes and Northumbria Police, the powers available to them to help tackle anti social behaviour and key outcomes.
Councillor Richard Porthouse, Forum Chairman, said: "Anti social behaviour has a negative impact on communities and can seriously affect the quality of life for residents. The Council and its partners have an increasingly important role to play in addressing the issue. I'm keen to hear more about the work going on in this area and I'm sure those who attend the meeting will also find this of interest."
Catherine Mackereth from the NHS South of Tyne and Wear will also give a presentation on what the organisation is doing to improve people's emotional health and wellbeing. It focuses on promoting emotional health and wellbeing and helping to reduce the risk of people developing mental health problems.
Councillor Porthouse added: "Our meetings are specifically for local communities and offer residents an opportunity to find out what is happening in their local area. We discuss a range of issues which affect the everyday lives of local people and Monday's meeting is no exception."
Members of the press and public are welcome to attend the next meeting of Hebburn Community Area Forum, which takes place on Monday 16th April, at 10am, in the Hebburn and District Iona Social Club, Station Road, Hebburn.
